Need guidance on your college application essay?
I can help you:
- identify possible areas to explore in your essay
- narrow your choice of topic
- develop your ideas
- structure and draft a compelling essay
- edit for flow, effective word choice, grammar, variety and voice
- proofread a polished essay ready to submit
When can we meet?
The earlier the better!
I can help at any stage of the process up to a week before the application date.
During the governor’s stay-at-home order, I’m offering tutoring online via Zoom, email and Google docs, and phone.
Once the order is lifted, I will again offer in-person tutoring in Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Springfield and McLean as well as remote help.
My focus is on helping you feel comfortable and confident about your accomplishments and the way you are introducing yourself to prospective colleges.
My approach is to meet students where they are with compassion while helping them feel confident as writers.
What about SAT preparation?
I coach students on many of the writing and reading conventions they need for standardized tests and can work with them on practice tests as part of our regular collaboration. Test preparation is currently not an area of focus for me.
Email haneyjessicaclaire (at) gmail (dot) com to request rates.
With 8 years teaching experience and 10+ years experience as a writing tutor, my rates are competitive for tutors in the DC area for general tutoring but are lower than tutors who focus on test preparation and/or college application essay coaching.
Coming Summer 2020:
Package rates for start-to-finish guidance through summer (when you have more time to think about your ideas and craft your words!) and into fall in time for Early Decision applications. Email to inquire!
